IPL 2019: SRH vs MI Preview Dream11 Prediction. Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians Preview Dream11 Prediction

After Andre Russell once again proved he isn’t human, attention turns to a big Saturday of IPL action. The second game of double-header is one worthy of circling on the schedule, with a blockbuster game in store.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have gone from strength-to-strength so far in IPL 2019. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow’s lowest partnership now sits at a mere 64, and their bowlers are starting to find their groove. They choked the life out of RCB and DC in recent games, and with today’s opponents struggling a little in the middle overs, another strong bowling performance can hold SRH in fine stead. Will they make it four wins in a row?

Mumbai Indians now face one of their biggest tests so far. Their excellent win over CSK resurrected their campaign from another slow start, and they have to put on another good showing vs one of the title challengers. Hardik Pandya has been absolutely outstanding for his side with the bat, and MI’s bowlers then combined to make life very difficult for CSK. Can they do the same against the much-vaunted SRH top order? Will MI make a big statement two weeks into IPL 2019? A great match awaits.

Key to a SRH win

The addition of Jason Behrendhorff in the MI side has added another dimension to their attack. So, the battle between SRH’s in-form openers and MI’s opening bowlers can be a crucial factor in the final result. Warner and Bairstow have been outstanding in this tournament, so much so that when one of them hasn’t quite been on song (as Bairstow was vs KKR and Warner last game vs DC), the other can keep things motoring along. With SRH losing a few quick wickets when the opening stand was broken vs DC, the onus is on the openers to deliver a great start against MI’s capable attack, setting a platform for the incoming batsmen, including Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi and Yusuf Pathan, to play with freedom.

Also, can SRH’s opening bowlers outplay MI’s? MI have relied on very good powerplay and death over periods so far in IPL 2019, so if SRH can pick up Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock early, a slightly struggling middle order is exposed to the likes of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi. To limit the impact of Hardik Pandya, SRH need to leave him with plenty to do, and land their yorkers really well. The onus is on the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Siddarth Kaul in that regard.

Key to a MI win

MI’s powerplay bowling was superb vs CSK. They ripped through an experienced, proven top order to leave the champions on the mat. Jason Behrendhorff, as mentioned, has already proven to be a fine addition to the side, and he will be absolutely crucial today against SRH’s fantastic opening partnership. Jasprit Bumrah, wicketless in his last two, can combine beautifully with Behrendhorff to force SRH to try attack quality, accurate bowling early on. However, how MI follow up the powerplay period will be crucial, too. If they can target the middle order, the likes of Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya will be crucial in placing significant pressure on the SRH middle order in the absence of Lasith Malinga.

However, a big problem for MI remains their middle overs batting. Against SRH’s fine Afghan spin combination, the onus is on the middle order to be much more proactive and effective in that period. They struggled at under six an over between overs seven and 15 vs CSK, which again required Pandya to go ballistic. Can Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock deliver a strong start, which is then followed up right throughout the duration of the innings?

Possible Playing 11

It is incredible to think the SRH skipper and IPL 2018’s leading runscorer Kane Williamson might have to sit out. With Jonny Bairstow on board until the end of the month before he leaves for England duty, SRH could stick with the following side for balance and form.

SRH: 1. David Warner, 2. Jonny Bairstow (wk), 3. Vijay Shankar, 4. Manish Pandey, 5. Yusuf Pathan, 6. Deepak Hooda, 7. Mohammad Nabi, 8. Rashid Khan, 9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10. Sandeep Sharma, 11. Siddarth Kaul

MI have some headaches. Do they persist with both Yuvraj Singh and Kieron Pollard? Ishan Kishan continues to sit out, and it might be time he comes in to help with MI’s middle overs problem. Also, with Lasith Malinga in Sri Lanka, MI might be forced to bring in Mitchell McClenaghan, who was dropped last game due to poor form.

Official: Alzarri Joseph and Ishan Kishan have come in.

MI: 1. Rohit Sharma, 2. Quinton de Kock (wk), 3. Suryakumar Yadav, 4. Ishan Kishan/Yuvraj Singh, 5. Kieron Pollard, 6. Hardik Pandya, 7. Krunal Pandya, 8. Mayank Markande/Rahul Chahar, 9. Jason Behrendhorff, 10. Alzarri Joseph, 11. Jasprit Bumrah

Match Prediction

What a match this promises to be.

It will be a 1:30am start in Sydney, but I’ll be up for this one. MI are a quality side, but they have a few holes that they don’t seem to be plugging. Much depends on their final XI, and I am impressed. I had SRH to win earlier, but have a feeling MI will win this.

MI to win.
